Be thrilled by this guided walk along Gosport High Street, listening to stories about slavery, ghosts, suicide, baby farming, poisoning, and under-the-counter Victorian photography! This event is for over 18’s only.

Your guide will tell you about key buildings in the High Street and surrounding area, and discover the more sordid and disreputable events that took place here in days gone by.  You’ll view photos along the way to enhance your experience, and even see some original Victorian naughty photographs.
